Last night I got home from work and plopped down on the couch to watch some good wholesome 24 on tv. I noticed that there was a little dog food kibble on the rug, which wasn't that unusual since Murray has taken to carrying food around in his mouth, spitting it out somewhere away from the bowl in the kitchen, and then eating them one by one. That, or he knocks all the kibble out of the bowl with his paw and then he and Tango commence eating them one by one.

Anyway, at the next commercial break I was on my way to the kitchen and leaned over to pick up the kibble to throw it back in their bowl. Except... it was squishy. And not so much like kibble anymore.

Have you figured out the punchline yet? It was dog shit. Not dog food. In my hand. Squished between my thumb and index finger.

Last night was not such a good night.

egads...I'm a dog walker and SEE poop and have to pick up poop every day. So you'd think I'd be desensitized but on the odd day that I TOUCH it I must SCRUB with burning hot water and dish soap then LOAD on the hand sanatizer. Then I think I smell it all day long. I've never SQUISHED it though. Poor you! Just a HEY from up the road ( I think I am about three town over from you). Love your blog - will become avid reader. Please be avid writer :-)

I clicked to read it too. And honestly, I didn't see that coming. :oP
A couple nights ago Ava pooped in our jacuzzi tub. I made Jody fish it out. That was pretty gross but also funny as hell (since I didn't have to get it out of the tub and Ava was the only one in it at that point). ;)
